PMG PHOTO: CHRISTOPHER KEIZUR - Barlow senior Alex Lowery finished third overall at the Mt. Hood Conference boys golf district championship. Barlow boys golf brought home a silver medal as the top competitors in the Mt. Hood Conference hit the links for the 2022 District Championships Monday and Tuesday, May 2-3, at Glendoveer Golf Course.

The Bruins had strong performances across the board, spurred by senior Alex Lowery, who was the third-overall individual finisher. Lowery braved inclement weather, which included absolute downpours that turned many sand traps into water traps, to score a 78 (+5) on the course.

As a team Barlow only trailed Central Catholic, which capped a perfect season of winning every MHC meet. The Rams won with 324 points, while David Douglas finished third with 329. The top three individual performers were Gavin Swartley, Central Catholic, 75 (+2); Kyle Tzeo, Clackamas, 76 (+3); and Lowery.

Central Catholic placed second (410 points) and Clackamas finished third (439).
